The following has been approved by the Democratic Platform Drafting Committee.
Forcing clean electricity will raise the cost of energy and reduce the reliability of the electrical grid.
Making climate change dissenting opinions potentially criminal reduces our freedoms.
Both positions are a testament to the tyranny the Democrat Party seeks to impose.
Beware of those who insist that everyone live the way they think they should.
Climate Change and Clean Energy: Moving beyond the “all of the above” energy approach in the 2012 platform, the 2016 platform draft re-frames the urgency of climate change as a central challenge of our time, already impacting American communities and calling for generating 50 percent clean electricity within the next ten years. The Committee unanimously adopted a joint proposal from Sanders and Clinton representatives to commit to making America run entirely on clean energy by mid-century, and supporting the ambitious goals put forward by President Obama and the Paris climate agreement. Another joint proposal calling on the Department of Justice to investigate alleged corporate fraud on the part of fossil fuel companies who have reportedly misled shareholders and the public on the scientific reality of climate change was also adopted by unanimous consent.
